Publisher's Summary

Hell hath no fury.... 

I thought I was trading one evil for a lesser one. Marry a man I might eventually love, forge an alliance between his gang and my father's, and get out from under Dad's sadistic thumb. 

Turns out my fiancé has other plans. Like slaughtering me and my entire family the night before the wedding. 

I make it out alive, left with nothing but a thirst for vengeance. But if I want to crush the prick who betrayed me, I have to turn to the biggest pricks of them all. 

Hot, cocky, and dangerous, Wylder Noble and his men rule Paradise Bend. Their help doesn't come cheap. I've got to prove I'm strong enough to deserve it. 

Whatever they throw at me, I can take it. No taunting words or scorching looks will break the wall around my heart. 

They think I'm made of glass? I'm a girl of shards that can cut you to the bone. 

Before this is over, someone's going to bleed. And this time, it won't be me. 

Scorned Princess is the first in a new gritty contemporary romance series from best-selling author Eva Chase (writing as Eva Chance) and Harlow King. No major triggers, but be prepared for domineering men who make their own rules, a rebellious heroine who's not afraid to get her hands dirty, and an enemies-to-lovers romance where the girl gets all the guys. It's going to be a wild, bloody ride!

Enjoyed this book

I really enjoyed this authors first attempt at contemporary, I have been a big Eva Chase fan for years and was excited for her new venture with this book. It is a bit of a bully murder mystery. I liked how strong the FMC was even when the guys were awful to her and how she stuck to what she believe needed to be done to take vengeance for her family. That cliffhanger though!! Definitely need to be prepared for it an grab book 2 as soon as possible.

A princess scorned

I loved how they saw her as weak and incapable to defend herself, the book is full of twisted, and secrets, i love how she proved she was more than cable to be like to boys, and her thirst for revenge is in powering.

She didn't deserve to watch her family died, but the way she manage it all, with a person trying to hurt her in the background, and the boys testing her right, left and center, made her lovable and strong MC.

XOXO Lottie.

Raw and gritty

From start to finish the authors and narrators drew me in and kept my attention. Both the authors are new to me and after listening to this book I need to listen to the whole series. After the cliff hanger of an ending I was on the edge of my seat.
I really enjoyed the story, it packed a punch into her characters that they almost seem to be real; Ava Lucas and J F Harding’s narration more than did justice to their story.
This story flowed well and the narration was engaging and easy to listen too. Full of drama and violence with some humour I was totally invested in this raw and gritty story.

Great Start!!! Can’t wait for the next

I really enjoyed this series. A gang romance with a bad ass FMC. & dickhead men who will learn. The male narrator (J.F. Harding) did great & the women was okay: sometimes she sounded really young & then others she sounded grown. This is the first series that I tried by EVA CHANCE aka Eva Chase that I liked. I have hated all of her books/ but she & Harlow did amazing with this series. Try it. You won’t be disappointed. Worth a credit.

This is going to be a great series!

Mercy thought she would finally escape her father's iron control over her life when she married the head of a rival gang to solidify their alliance. Colt Bryant was not the love of her life, but he always treated her kindly and with respect. But then he turned on her and her family on the night before the wedding. She was the only one who managed to escape. Not sure where to go that Colt wouldn't find her she felt she only had one choice - a crime family that rivaled hers - the Nobles.

Mercy must now find a way to convince Wylder Noble to help her get her revenge. He and his closest associates are not going to let her waltz in and start a war. The things she will have to do to prove herself are not for the faint-hearted. Even if she manages to win over Wylder she might still lose.

I was given a copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

Eva Chace writing contemporary? More please.

I'm a huge fan of Ms. Chase's Paranormal books but my true love has always been contemporary books, so when I heard she was dipping her toe in the contemporary genre, I was looking forward to reading and seeing what she would come up with. And I'm so glad I did. The story dug its talons into me from the very beginning with it's Red Wedding start and didn't let go until the very and. I loved the characters and the strength of our main female character as she puts up with all the crap the guys per her through in her quest for revenge.

The dual narration was wonderful and both narrators knocked the characters out of the park. I cannot wait for more!

better

better than I thought as this is not my typical read/listen. As Mercy's fiancé (gang) kills her family she seeks help from the Nobles to get revenge. In the process she has to prove she is worth helping.

Mercy

Although I enjoyed the first instalment of Mercy's story and this series there were parts of it I didn't but I'll mention them later. Mercy's father the leader of the Claws Gang arranged for her to marry the head of a rival gang to cement peace between his gang and theirs. Originally Mercy thought that she might be able to build a future with her new husband, little did she know it was his intention to kill her and her whole family. He did in fact kill her whole family but she managed to escape and ended up seeking shelter from the Nobles where four of the guys Wylder, Kaige, Rowan and Gideon catch her eye just as she catches theirs.

The Nobels seem to rule everything but four of the men immediately grab her attention, these guys are all dangerous but that's where the similarities end because they have very different personalities which make for an interesting dynamic. The leader is Wylder, he's utterly ruthless then there's Rowan, the charmer with whom Mercy has a history which is revealed slowly as you get into the story, then Gideon the brains of the organisation and last but not least Kaige is the muscle. Despite their differences, these guys work really well together and are a force to be reconned with.

Mercy's strong, she had to be to survive in the environment she grew up in and as she and the guys spend more time together the guys begin to wonder if there's more to her than just the pampered princess they were expecting her to be, she's certainly fearless and strong but there's more to her than that. After all, a lot has happened to her in her life already and just she was looking forward to this new beginning her life turned into a nightmare of murder and betrayal, now she's determined to get revenge on her fiancé, but will the guys help her?

The chemistry between her and Kaige is palpable I have to admit of the guys he was my personal favourite, he's sexy, strong with a body to die for yet he's flirtatious, cheeky and fun. Gideon may be quieter, but there's just something about him that intrigued me. While Wylder is a natural leader and takes over any scene he's involved in then there's Kaige, I'll let you decide what you think about him.

They don't make it easy for Mercy to prove herself, to show them how strong her character is and just what she has to offer but in the end, she comes through. That said, and this is my criticism, there were times she let them walk all over her and didn't show her natural strength of character, something about this just didn't sit right with me. But overall the plot was interesting, I liked the element of mystery, the many plot twist and how they go about solving the murder.

Then we have the ending........ an ending I for one am hoping turns out to be misdirection on the part of the author. But until I listen to the next book I just won't know.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review

A princess of a story

Wow Eva and Harlow wrote a great start to a series . It had me glued right till the end . The story is very well detailed , the story has everything you would want , action, revenge and mystery.
What did the heroine Mercy do who does she turn to when her fiancé slaughtered her whole family. There is only one family that she can go to , the Noble family. Wlyder Noble the heir and his three right hand men of Kaige, Gideon and Rowan plus his Aunt put Mercy through the wringer.
There is also a betrayal in the Noble household, you will never suspect who it is. What I like about this story, that there is plenty of POV and of course a cliffhanger. Get ready for book 2

The performance of Ava Lucas, J.F. Harding brought you right into the story . It seems your standing right beside the characters.

WOW

I loved listening to this book! This is such a delightful and sometimes dark mafia story.

The characters are well thought out and written, they all have hard shells but do start to let their vulnerabilities come to light.  Mercy has many delightfully unexpected strengths.

This book is full of twists and turns keeping you on the edge of your seat. It was a joy listening to this book especially after reading it a couple of months ago, the narrators are superb and really brought these characters to life.
